About the Committee

Steps to Freedom Committee

Since 2003 the Steps to Freedom Committee has hosted the Steps to Freedom conference. There has been a variety of formats utilized, including single guest speakers, Joe and Charlie Style couples, multiple local community leaders. It always has focused on carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the Alcoholics that still suffer.

In addition to hosting the workshop in the Summer, the committee has hosted a number of other events or activities. In 2015, Steps to Freedom committee took on the annual Soberween celebration. It is an annual sober event, dance, gathering, party, with music, food, dancing, costumes, decoration, and fun. It has grown in popularity every year and has become a must attend event for AA members of all types. It has always been held near downtown Tampa so it is accessible for everybody in the Tampa Bay region.

There have been other events like rummage sales, Founders day events, and bake sales. Funds raised are always contributed to service organizations based on the committees group conscience. Most recently the committee has been contributing all proceeds from all activities to Tampa Bay Area Institutions Committee. The fund raising is a integral part of what the committee does but it is not the only think that is being accomplished. We are providing opportunities for old timers, well grounded members, and new comers to come to gather under a united purpose. It is a fun way to get involved and witness AA members 'Walking the Walk.' There is a great deal of merriment about it all. Like it has been said about sponsorship 'it helps us more then it helps them.' There is always a lot to do in putting on large events and there is always room to include more volunteers.
